This video shares a good deal of the concerns – we are working to bring solutions. While we cannot quickly eliminate the racism – we can provide tools to our community to combat internalized oppression and to provide tools , education and information to support healthy life style choices.
That’s our commitment to Oakland’s African American Mothers!
